What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Virtual Reality brings a whole new level of immersion into video games, unparalleled by every other format that preceded it so far. Traditionally RPG games have been all about immersion, since they often put a lot of effort to transfer us in their fictional worlds. We see Virtual Reality as a great opportunity to literally transfer players in our world of The SoulKeeper®.

However with the many advantages VR brings, it also brings a lot of uncertainties, and it still remains uncharted waters for game developers, since we all work to find what works best and what doesn't.

VR game development is still a collective effort, and as such we believe the best way to approach it is by directly involving our audience in the development process. With Early Access not only you support indie developers like us financially, which in its own helps create a better game as you enable us to dedicate even more resources back into the development, but you also support us by participating in the evolution of the game. With Early Access we can establish a direct line of communication with you, hear you out, exchange feedback and ideas, and finally bring you the good looking, fun to play and fully immersive RPG you have been looking for in VR.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate to have this game in Early Access through 2018, although we do want and will work to bring it to completion earlier than that. We understand speed is essential, especially to a demanding audience, but quality of a polished product is our first priority.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will be considerably larger than the Early Access version in all aspects. More specifically, the full version will feature:

  • Multiple playable characters, each with their set of skills and gameplay mechanics
  • Varied environments from different parts of Gerindak, the SoulKeeper's world
  • Interactable NPCs and additional enemy types
  • Deeper and richer story

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access will be fully playable and will offer a variety of combat styles and mechanics, including melee combat, spell casting, combat with staff, ranged. It will also feature 3 large areas, with two to three levels each, making up a total of 8 levels, each with varying degrees of interaction that include puzzle solving, Boss fights, item looting and interaction with NPCs.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Given the considerable amount of additional features the full version will have, it will also undergo a slight price increase when compared to the Early Access, however all users who purchase the Early Access will receive the full version at no additional cost.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“To ensure an easy and as direct as possible communication with the community, we will be engaging our users in multiple ways, including through full utilization of the Steam Community Hub for our game, The SoulKeeper® official forums, periodical newsletters, dedicated email addresses for the purpose of communication, developer blogs and Twitch streaming sessions through which we can discuss updates and features.”

Development Blog: November 28, 2018



Welcome to another Dev Blog update!

We know, we know, it has been a while since July 12th...
However there's a good reason for that.

We know you've been craving some new screenshots, or even better, some new videos, and all these are coming very soon, but today's update is about bringing you up to speed with why we have been quiet since the last dev blog update.

All these months since our last update here, our team has been working harder than ever, at insane speeds and quality. Sure it doesn't feel that way when looking in from outside, but worry not, before the year's out you will know what all this hard work was about. That was a fancy way of saying, you will find out more this December! :steamhappy:

In the meantime, just to give you an idea of the amount of work our team has been putting in, in the last 2 months alone we have implemented over 300 fixes, new features and updates. Our Trello board is on fire! Speaking of which that's what graciously covers today's header image, all the blue labeled posts are part of the fixes, updates and features that have been done in the last couple of weeks alone. Sorry for the bluring out of the trello image, but again, December is around the corner, and so are the details that will come out about the game.

Being a small team sometimes brings up the dillema, whether we should put time and energy into the development itself, or somewhere else. Naturally we know an equal amount of time and energy to all aspects is ideal, but more often than not, things are not ideal, so prioritizing makes all the difference in the world, and the last couple of months were all about prioritizing quality as well as quantity on the development front, hence our PR front was a bit left behind.

Nonetheless we have been working even on that front, and we have come up with a plan that will allow better communication, more transparency, as well as more involvement, and most importantly more fun interaction with all of you supporting us and sticking around to see where this goes.

So with that said, it is time to bring this short update to an end and get back to work, so that in December we can share with you all the exciting things we have been working on so hard!

Finally, don't forget to support us by following us through the links below.

Coolest regards from the entire dev team!! :steamhappy:
